Located in the west London inner-city district of Bayswater. The Grove Picture Palace opened in around 1912. It was re-named Roxy Cinema around 1929, possibly cashing in after the famed Roxy Theatre in New York City. In the mid-1950’s, certainly by 1954 it was named the Roxy Repertory Cinema.

It was re-named International Film Theatre from 10th January 1960, and screened foreign ‘art house’ films. It was closed on 9th March 1968 with Harriet Andersson in "The Serpent"(Ormen) and Francoise Arnoul in "The Season For Love"(La Morte Saison des Amours).

The building stood empty and unused for several years, and was later demolished for the site to be redeveloped.
